When your kids are having fun, learning comes easy!
Here in Toronto there are many attractions to visit that make learning fun and exciting.
If you are looking for your next educational trip, Compten Management Inc. has some great suggestions!
Animals provide excellent learning opportunities and they are so much fun to see! Kids can learn about what animals need to survive and how to protect their habitats at the Toronto Zoo. While they're enjoying watching the different animals, they are actually learning about their specific needs, traits, habitats, and what sounds they make.
Another great place to learn about animals is Ripley's Aquarium of Canada. Marine life is just as fascinating and equally as important. Teaching our youngest generation why it's important to protect our waters and ecosystems is easy when they can see the animals that live in the water up close. Here, children can view interactive exhibits, get hands on in the wet stations, and learn about specific species at an aquarist talk.
Inquisitive children love science and teaching them at an early age helps answer those big questions like 'why is the sky blue?' and 'where does the sun go at night?' At the Ontario Science Centre little ones learn through the interactive exhibits and the Kidspark activities teach children about life systems, matter, energy, space, and more. Kids have so much fun 'doing', that they don't even realize they are learning!
Museums and art galleries offer a unique experience where children and parents can learn together with hands on creative activities. At the Royal Ontario Museum children can touch and hold a snapping turtle shell, dig for dinosaur bones, or view amazing dinosaur skeletons and fossils preserved in amber. And the Art Gallery of Ontario, families can explore the importance of art by creating some themselves. There are many great family based activities and Free After Three is a great way to get older children learning and creating art.
Toronto has countless opportunities to make learning fun. Get out into your community and explore these great attractions with your kids!
